Item of the Day: Bake It In A Cupcake Cookbook AND Giveaway!

Cupcakes. I love ’em. In fact, I’ve already eaten three today. Okay, not super proud of that. But seriously guys, there are very few things on the planet that are better than cupcakes, am I right? Now, try to imagine a cookbook that offers fun recipes for unexpected ingredients to be added in the warm little tummy of a cupcake. To name a few: swiss cheese and chives, chocolate covered pretzels, cheese cake and pumpkin pie INSIDE OF A CUPCAKE. Hang on, let me get you a tissue for that drool. Sounds amazing right?
